When you are playing a game, can you save your data? can you put music, video or game demos on your hdd? have you try reformatting your hard drive? go to settings>system settings>restore ps3 systems once there u can start to reformat your hard drive. note it will erase everything you have on the system. and if u downloaded any games from the psn you can retrieve them under the download management. you just have to redownload them. before reformatting though try this method.

turn the system off from the back.
turn it back on. (it should be in standby mode now)
press the power button and keep your finger on it till it beeps three times. (its about a second apart.) and turns off.
take your finger off of the power button and press it again.
this time keep your finger on it till it beeps twice in quick succession and take your finger off.
it should tell you to connect a controller with a usb
once u do i'll give u a menu.
select option #3 and let it finish

this option will fix most minor software side problems
if this don't help u may want to reformatting your hard drive and hope u don't have to replace it. and before u do reformatt if u have any game saves u want to save u can copy those over to a usb flash card.

replacing the hard drive is easy. you just have to be careful not to strip the head of the screw thats holding it in place.

There is companies that make data recovery, you could try them, there is also some for private use, but they are not that good. But those companies will pay a lot, if you have a good home insurance you could try them to pay recovery.

Depends how much you appreciate the information on hard disk.

Playstation 3 hard disk files corrupted???


hey ash,

ps3 Hard drive needs to be manually reformatted and checked for bad sectors.

as what youve said, you already formatted it and yet it still says there is a corrupt system file.

when i say "manually formatted" you have to clearly take the hard drive out and format it using another pc or ps3.

Most likely your hard drive is completely corrupted. It could be as simple as a new Hard Drive replacement or as complicated as a motherboard issue.

Corrupt File System


Well i guess that either your file system is corrupt or your disk is formatted into a filesystem that it's not supported by the backup programs. I don't really know what filesystem is your disk formatted into but usually the FAT32 and FAT16 are the most failsafe file systems for Windows.
So copy/paste the data you don't want to loose and then go to
My computer -> right click on the drive icon -> format and then choose fat 32. Then try backing up your laptop again.
